COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloïdal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

330ml bottle (expiry end 5/09) into a tumbler glass. Pours hazy dark blond with a medium sized lingering creamy white head. Perfumey aromas of blood red oranges, melons, coriander leaves and wheat. Light bodied with a lively mouthfeel. Flavour is fruity sweetish wheat malts finishing with a mildly citric acid lemony freshness. More complex than Hoegaarden Witbier which is high praise indeed if you ask me. However it is much more expensive Down Under and not readily available.

From the 1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz. bottle marked 30/05/11-J-10:07. It pours a very cloidy pale yellow with a large foamy head. The aroma is of malts, coriander, and citrus and somewhat enticing. The mouthfeel is fairly heavy. The taste is a fine balance of malts, orange, coriander, and other spices and downright smooth. An enjoyable experience.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottled. Pours really light yellow light a BMC with a good white head. Aroma is fruits: orange and lemon dominate, but smells like a bowl of fruitloops. Flavor is really fruity with a good spiced character mixed in. Kind of a combination of juicy fruit gum and fruit loops, with belgian yeast. Very easy drinking.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2009
bottle #2814 from metzlers in denton tx. this may be one of the most disappointing beers i have ever bought. poured a clear yellow with a quick fading white head. aroma of lemon, orange zest, and coriander. flavor was the same. light body with high carbonation. this was the first beer i bought because of a shelf tag. the tag was a BA tag with a rating of A- so i figured it must be somewhat good. at 9 bucks a bottle i guess i was expecting a little more.

MtStateBeer (84) - Hurricane, West Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2009
330ml bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a cloudy lemony yellow color with an, initially large head, that reduces to light draping with decent lacing. Aroma is light bread malt, coriander, cloves, licorice, and a hint of citrus. Flavor is similar, with a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, a bit watery, but lively as a witbier should. There is a slightly bitter finish. Overall a decent beer, true to the style.

Bottle brown, 330 ml, 10 P
Appearance: Pours sunny bright lemony and very light in colour, honey mixed with water, hazy to cloudy body texture, very lively saturated beer under tha shade of yeasty, cloudyness, some metalic illumination of the body, head is milky white, initially huge, very dense, compact, regular in structure, slowly decreasing to medium, long lasting with nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong aroma of clove, banana, orange peal, sour bread peal, white bread, cookies, dough, yeast strains, coriander, some accidity, sweet powder sugar, milk, cream, toffee, juicy, lemon, lime, wheat, barley malt is hidden, some notes of flowery hops, vanilla, butter, cinnamon.
Flavour: Generally rather non - intensive, weak, especially on palate, distinct notes of wheat, barley, poor in terms in hoppyness, reduced yeastyness and what is the greatest disadvantege is its lack of accidity so needed to contribute to the character of this style, gentle bitterness, notes of lemon, lime, flowery hops, thirst quanching, bubble gum, powder sugar impression but still not that sweet, finish duration is medium, non - impressive.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is moderate but initially lively, finish feel is gently astringent and gently alcoholic but still alcohol is well hidden.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2009
330ml bottle. Mountainous frothy white head with tiny compacted foam bubbles. Hazy and pale straw in colour with good carbonation as the bubbles rise rapidly from the bottom. Citrus and banana notes with a hint of melon. Nice mild flavour with just a sweet touch.

ContemplateBeer (1777) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 18, 2009
Aroma has strong orange and coriander presence. Appearance is cloudy with a good sized head fluffy white head. Flavor is a bit watery, some coriander but the orange presence has dissipated. Smooth mouthfeel, lightly bubbly. Looks and smells like it means business, but comes up short in the mouth.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2009
Very pleasant pale straw pour with 3 finger persistent head. Aroma is pleasing, lots of orange,wheat, coriander and honey. Also some soap in the background. Taste doesn’t quite satisfy as well as aroma. Very light and sweet, a bit of wheat, thats about it. Body is very light, with lively carbonation. Amazingly refreshing.
